Pakistani Student Deported Without Sound Reasons
A BBA final year student, studying in a Newcastle institute, who hails from the Islamic Republic of Pakistan has been reported forcibly deported on the grounds that he worked over-time than the permitted hours.
A final year BBA student from Pakistan studying in a Newcastle institution was forcibly deported from the UK early last week on the charge that he had worked for more than the permitted hours.
This move basically goes against the norms of UK Border Agency.
Those who come here on student visa are allowed to work for only 20 hours a week and anyone found violating the law in most cases is normally warned off with a reprimand but has never before been deported in the fashion that the Pakistani student was subjected to.
Here's how the incident took place:
The student in question was reportedly woken up by the metropolitan police in the early hours of the day, told he was to be deported because he had violated his visa work terms, forced to change in the presence of the police and whisked to the airport and bundled on a Pakistan-bound flight.
Meanwhile, his roommates are said to have telephoned his family in Pakistan which contacted the High Commission in London and the HC trying to trace the boy approached the Foreign and Commonwealth Office which put it in contact with the Home Office which is said to have stonewalled the query until the student was put on board.
Sources speculated that the UK was annoyed by Pakistan’s refusal to sign an MoU allowing Britain to deport any Pakistani without assigning any reason with Islamabad undertaking not to arrest and torture the deportee.
Sources who have been following the case closely speculated that perhaps the UK authorities piqued by Pakistan’s refusal to sign an MoU allowing Britain to deport any Pakistani without assigning any reason with Islamabad undertaking not to arrest and torture the deportee.
